Because, if I had my computer back, which is currently being fixed because my fantastic husband downloads too much crap and has seemed to crash the entire thing, (but don't tell him I said that because he's a little touchy on that subject and denies doing anything to it. Ha! I know him better then that) then I'd be able to show you guys what it looks like when Kyra wears a size 9-12 month pants that fit, perfectly in length and width, paired with a 9-12 month shirt, that fits in width but is 3 inches too short.
Two months ago, at her 15 month check-up, she was 20 pounds and 31 inches. She has the weight of an average 12 month old, but the height of an average 15 month old. This does nothing for me when trying to properly fit her for any kind of outfit. Sure, it may fit her in length, but then it swallows her whole. Or, if I get something that fits her weight and width, then her tummy or behind is sticking out.
12-18 month pants are too long for her midget legs and just fall off her tiny frame of a waist, 12-18 month shirts are starting to be too short for her long torso and allow her tummy to poke out of some of them. Babies R Us is filled with completely cute and adorable spring and summer outfits in which the top and bottoms come in the same size. See my problem?
Its no secret to me that she gets this from me. My itty bitty legs are so short that petite pants are still too long, and the average shirt, after being washed and dried, tends to crop me at my tummy. I too have a difficult time finding clothes that fit me well and look descent.
So here is my question to you all, do Little People (aka: midgets) only have tiny legs, or tiny everything? And if Little People do have only tiny legs, are you then calling me and Kyra midgets?
